TDI 3 litre fuel consumption

Post by MJP » Fri Oct 20, 2017 7:17 pm

Good evening to all members.

I have had my new Discovery 5 SE TDI 6, Firenze Red with Panoramic and rear Camera as extras for three weeks now. firstly, I have to say that I am delighted with the vehicle. I have had 3 Discovery 4's and the difference is, I feel extraordinary. I love driving her.
However, using the ECO page, I am driving the car between 95% and 99% but the fuel usage does not seem to be anywhere near what LR state for Urban/Extra Urban etc. Has anyone else found that they are experiencing lower MPG that thy expected !!

Regards to all. Malcolm (Aberdeen Scotland)

Hi Malcolm, I also own a 5SE TDI 6. My fuel economy is better than my Discovery4. I recently took a trip down to the NEC in Birmingham from Blackpool and it averaged 44/46mpg . I maintained around 64 mph when able.. I don’t drive it hard as I know it will pick it’s feet up if required and I am not interested in any other drivers trying to goad me into putting my foot down. I also tow a twin axel caravan
and a trip to Italy and back returned 24 mpg overall. ( speed around 60mph)
Hope this helps
Alan

Is that a typo? Should it = 42 mpg?
24 mpg would be a disaster in my terms! Just re-read your post and that mpg was while towing. :oops:

Hi all,
I have the added disadvantage with my 3.0 TDI HSE in that I seem to only do very short trips mainly. I'm averaging only 22 to 25mpg!

If I go on a longer trip, it does get itself up to around 35 to 38mpg.

I think the 24mpg relates to towing a twin axle caravan. Dont panic🤣🤣
